The man who played tough guy Slim Charles in HBO’s acclaimed series The Wire was stabbed at a D.C. nightclub early Sunday morning.
Anwan Glover was treated at George Washington University Hospital after being beaten and stabbed by an unknown assailant.
According to the Washington Post:
Glover reported that he was on the second floor of Cafe Asia, a restaurant at 1720 I Street NW, when an unknown person punched him. He turned to face his assailant, and another person hit him on the back of the head, causing him to slip on the wet floor.
Glover said that he was then kicked multiple times. He heard someone shout, “He has a knife,” and felt a sharp pain in his right side.
Police say they responded to another attack at the same club about 20 minutes before the stabbing of Glover. However, a D.C. police spokesman said the assaults were not related.
The 41-year-old actor, who lives in Upper Marlboro and has participated in anti-violence campaigns, is expected to survive.
